When I was trying to remember the first half of the year I realized something. I write this blog, which is very long, and I rarely look back. I look back if I want to link to something specific, or sometimes if I'm trying to remember when something happened, or how something was sequenced, but I don't usually really use it to look back. Which is funny, because I would tell you that I use it as a way to have memories. I know that whenever I'm sick I block it out or don't process life well enough to remember much. Which is also just a defense because I don't need to remember some thing, as Dr. Mind would rapidly interject here. And in a weird way I've gotten to the point that I don't worry about remembering some of it. I let that be his job. Which shows how far we've come in the last almost 4 years.
But do you look back? I'm curious, because I always think that this is a way of having a record of my life, but I really don't use it that way.
